Classic and specialty car and motorcycle owners will rev their engines for charity this Saturday, April 5 at the 10th annual Cruisin’ For A Cure Car Show at Courthouse Square in Henrietta.

Benefitting the American Cancer Society, the event will kick off at 9 a.m. with registration for cars and motorcycles in more than 20 categories, including street rods, Corvettes, pickups, restored and unrestored originals and muscle cars. Among the categories of winners honored during the concluding award ceremony at 3 p.m., there will be a special Star Award selected from vehicles entered by cancer survivors. All cars and motorcycles owned by cancer survivors will be designated with a purple star of hope displayed in the front windshield.

There will even be a chance for kids to enter their own custom work with a cardboard box car show category. Kids’ cars must be constructed from cardboard with suspenders for the child to wear the car, and must not include rolling chassis or motorized vehicles. Registration is $15 for cars and motorcycles, and $2 for cardboard cars.

In addition, the car show will also feature food and t-shirt venders, and a scavenger hunt. The schedule of events will be:

  • 9–10:30 a.m.: Registration
  • 10:30–11 a.m.: Registration for kid’s cardboard box car competition
  • 11 a.m.–2 p.m.: Judging
  • 3 p.m.: Awards
